Brief History Of The School
The Mira Movement in Education was born out of the vision of a philosopher and an educationist- Sadhu Vaswani.

He founded the St.Mira's School in Hyderabad Sind in 1933. After the partition, Sadhu Vaswani selected Pune as the headquarters for his work, as also for the School.
St.Mira's Educational Board was constituted in the year 1950 under the Chairmanship of Maharishi. D.K.Karve, who had watched the progress of the Mira Movement from its very inception. He had great appreciation for its ideals,and admiration for its Revered Founder.
